About the Book
The year is 2027. Brilliant young ob-gyn Arianna Drake is an expert in genetic engineering, but embryonic stem cell research is considered first-degree murder. Arianna must evade government watchdogs to use her research to reverse her own multiple sclerosis---which will kill her without a miracle cure.
Her actions attract the attention of the Department of Embryo Preservation. But as their undercover agent investigates Arianna’s enigmatic operation, his faith in his mission unravels. Split between the traditions he knows and the truth he fears, his life implodes just as he gains power over Arianna. Nothing less than human life---and profound scientific progress---hang in the balance.
A thought-provoking thriller by debut author Kira Peikoff, LIVING PROOF is also a celebration of love and life that cuts to the core of a major cultural debate of our time.
